I have been playing a lot of KoTOR recently, mostly the mods that are out there, and decided to play around with weapon choices for my Jedi. KoTOR sword fighting battles in general look really good, which I hope is an inspiration for SWToR. I tried the double-blade lightsaber and found it lacking compared to the others, while single and dual-wielding was pretty badass. The class that I wanted to play in SWTOR was the Shadow Consular but after seen that they use a double-blade I have decided for the Jedi Knight.
I find the way I picked my class very lacking, so I wanted to ask the community here if weapons influence your character decisions more than the abilities the class have.
